BJ Rowley's New Novel 'Sting' Released
OREM, UTAH -- Author B J Rowley is very happy to announce the release
of his brand-new adventure novel, "STING!" This is an exciting,
action-packed adventure about a young man who carries an electrical
charge around in his body and shocks people all the time. Then he
becomes supercharged, learns to control and direct his electrical
impulses, gets himself into a fair amount of trouble in the process,
and even turns a sports car invisible!
Stephen Ray Fischer, otherwise known as Sting, has a very annoying
little 'thing' about him. He can't seem to touch anyone without
shocking them--literally. Even with rubber-soled shoes and standing
on plain dirt or cement, everybody gets zapped.
It's not serious, of course. Kids do it all the time. But not ALL the time.
Now, as a junior in his small-town high school, Sting's schoolmates

the walking, human lightening bolt. And her father, a retired
scientist with a very mysterious past, takes the supercharged Sting
under his wing and into his confidence as he works secretly on his
'project' in the garage.
Then life gets complicated.
Sting's jolted and electrocuted peers decide to teach him a lesson
he'll never forget. Some unnamed government agencies from the big
city want Sting locked up for scientific study. Church member want
him 'Ex'ed. And a smooth talking businessman -- with bodyguards -- wants to
'employ' Sting for reasons he can't even begin to imagine.
And as if that weren't enough, Mr. Phillips' project--a top secret,
uniquely modified, VERY supercharged Corvette Stingray--has suddenly
And all fingers point to Sting Ray Fischer.
It's a guaranteed, page turning, good time.
